Big banks were making headlines on Wednesday, with Bank of America ( BAC) receiving lower-than-expected bids for its Columbia Management business, Citigroup ( C) raising credit-card interest rates and Morgan Stanley ( MS) expanding its partnership with Mitsubishi UFJ ( MTU) to include a loan marketing venture.

In earnings news, General Mills ( GIS) reported its fourth quarter on Wednesday morning, with earnings of $358 million, or $1.07 a share, up from 53 cents a share in the same quarter last year and beating analyst estimates for 81 cents a share.

General Mills added $2.16, or 3.9%, to $58.18 on Wednesday.

And the newspaper business took another hit with reports that publisher Gannett ( GCI), due to declining revenue, will cut up to 2,000 more jobs .

Gannett added 9 cents, 2.5%, to close at $3.66 on Wednesday.
